% each. and among independents, governor romney is surging past president obama, according to a brand new abc "the washington post" poll, the governor is 19 points ahead of the president. that's 57 to 38%. and when it comes to who is better equipped to handle the economy, that same poll reveals that more voters believe that governor romney is and that's 52% to 43%. now, on to the all important swing states. and, according to the latest according to the latest fox news poll in virginia governor romney is leading by two points that's 47 to 45 percent. now the growing surge in nanny demographics could be partly due to the fact that republicans are more energized than democrats. a new pew research poll finds 73 percent of republicans say this election is interesting while only 66 percent of democrats feel that way. the obama campaign can try to spin all of these new polls anyway they want but the numbers don't lie. joining me with reaction and analysis the architect fox news contributor, karl roaf. how are you? >> you don't need me. you did a terrific job there. that's fabulous. set the stage

, the three debates, all that came before it, it comes down to what kind of a president do you want? obama's a man of the world. he respects other countries, accepts the fact we are, we americans, part of this planet. maybe the best part. but we share the world, and we better be a smart, just, and competent citizen in it. we need to take the long view of our interests and use our influence when we can but also avoid stuff that makes the future more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendenc
